Why did Argentina pick a city of 15,000 that is 500km away from the nearest water. I wouldn't be surprised to see it get over 5 votes. Really bizarre. :wacko:

Rosario would have had possibilities, very akward Argentina's choice :S

^^ I agree. Rosario would have been a great candidate. I still don't get why they got picked instead. I'm also surprised Bogota decided to not submit a bid for 2019 (meanwhile, San Juan preferred to bid for 2023).

My hopes goes for Puerto Ordaz but honestly I think Santiago will get this.

I think Puerto Rico felt it was South America's turn. However if they bid as the only Caribbean candidate with the other 4 vote splitting they might have pulled off the shock win.

Plus, Messi was supporting the bid in a few ads they launched at Youtube. La Punta is the Pan American Hambantota of the day.

^ Kindda worst than Hambantota :(, Sri Lanka didn't have a lot of choices and Colombo is crowded... Argentina had a lot of cities better than La Punta.

I support Santiago... Chile is an amazing country! And in second place I support Puerto Ordaz.

Well La punta has the most compact plan with all venues apparently 10 mins away. (Which I dont understand considering where will the sailing be?) Ian Troop thinks it is a good plan because it contrasts the big city games of Toronto 2015.

I was thinking it was a fan made logo, but looks like it's official. Rosario was more professional.

Sad news. The creator of the logo/mascot of San Luis bid and famous cartoonist Manuel Garcia Ferre died today in Buenos Aires.

I like Venezuela's render of the gymnastics arena, however "Gimnasio de Gimnasia" sounds very funny :lol: lol
